It is very easy to reduce the Start Up time of any system. Though you have not mentioned the OS you're using , I suppose you have some Windows version. The trick I'm going to explain below works for all Windows OSs like Windows XP, Windows Vista and Window 7. By following the below mentioned steps you can easily make your system start up faster like anything. As you have mentioned you're using some of the IBM software and there may be more software programs in your system.
Before telling you the solution of this problem, let me also explain the cause which makes our system start slower like anything. And everybody hates waiting while our system takes long time to get start. The main reason of this issue is "start of multiple program's thread during the start of system". Many software and programs by default gets enable in the start up menu and it starts every time we start the system. Indeed, we don't use all the programs every time we start the system. So, it is just not necessary to let all programs to start by default. In this solution, you just have to configure start up option and you can manage all the programs you want to start with system start.
To reduce the Start Up time of Computer System :
Step : 1 - Go to Run
Step : 2 - Type "msconfig" and press Enter
Step : 3 - System Configuration Utilities Window will appear
Step : 4 - Look for the tab "StartUp" and Click it.
Step : 5 - Here you can see list of all marked programs currently loading while you start your system. There will be three option like StartUp Item, Command and Location. You can expand the command to know the programs name and details.
Step : 6 - Un-Mark all the programs except Antivirus(Kaspersky for you). For security reason you can let anti-virus to get start with system start.
Step : 7 - After un-marking all the marked one except Antivirus. You can now Click "Apply"
Step : 8 - System will restart and you will get a faster system start here after. You will be prompted with a dialog box about the setting changes, you can click "Don't show me again" and you can close it.
You're done! Now your system will only start antivirus by default and it will be very faster then before. Worry not still you can use any software by starting them. Just try it yourself to experience the faster boot or start of your system.
